approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Robert's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Robert Stephens comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Robert Stephens - his real motivation, which describes the kind of person he is at heart and where his true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Robert Stephens" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Robert a little better. This page describes the disguise Stephens wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant, fair, always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and prepared to see the other side of an issue. Even if he strongly disagrees with someone, Robert Stephens will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. He often avoids taking an extreme or one-sided stance on anything. Robert has a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and revels in a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship, and fairness. Robert Stephens very much wants to be liked and because of his need for approval and acceptance, Stephens is easily influenced by others' opinions, especially those expressed by the young. He so much wants to please that often Robert Stephens will suppress his own intense or unpleasant feelings in order to avoid offending others. Sometimes Stephens' politeness is interpreted as being phony or wishy-washy.
His need to create harmony extends to his physical environment and personal appearance as well. Robert Stephens appreciates beauty and has a natural sense of balance, symmetry, and proportion. He does everything in good taste, with a sense of style and art. From his home furnishings to his choice of clothing, everything must be aesthetically appealing, not simply functional or utilitarian.
He also feels that relationships are a form of art - one that Stephens is especially interested in and usually quite skilled at, for Robert possesses tact and acute awareness of other people. Marriage is very significant to him and finding the right person to share his life with is extremely important. Being part of a close relationship seems natural to Robert Stephens - he is not an independent loner. Having a partner increases his self-confidence. Robert Stephens does have a tendency, however, to become overly dependent on his partner and perhaps not to develop a clearly defined identity outside of the relationship. Finding the balance between being himself and blending and uniting with another is a challenge for Robert.
Others see Robert Stephens as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and "nice" person. Though there may be much more to him, this is the sort of face Stephens shows to the world. He possesses personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. His motto could be "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar" for Robert Stephens usually adopts a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful, I'm-going-to-conquer-the-world attitude.
His emotional responses, feelings and prejudices come across to others quite clearly and Robert Stephens could come across as rather moody and fickle. On the other hand, he is not impersonal or removed, so people are drawn to confide in him. At times Stephens may wish he were not so easy to read.
Robert Stephens appears to be sweet to other people, and he knows how to use charm, persuasion and affection rather than more direct (but possibly disagreeable) methods to get his point across. He may be overly concerned with appearances and superficial beauty, in which case Robert Stephens may also seem vain and narcissistic to others.
Stephens projects a feeling of broad-mindedness, generosity, and beneficence, a sense that he is someone others should listen to and treat with respect. Because Robert Stephens generally makes such a favorable impression on people, many doors are open to him, and he may appear to be somewhat luckier than other people. This is primarily due to the confidence that Robert Stephens emanates.
